A Memorable Tonight Show On Antenna T.V.

August 29, 2016

There was another terrific Tonight Show, starring Johnny Carson, which aired on Antenna TV last night. Though I missed the beginning of the show when the original air date was given, I ascertained the show originally was broadcast close to Christmas Day in 1978.

The show included letters to Santa Claus, most touching being those from young people that were poor, but were asking for gifts for others. Carson eloquently and sincerely informed the audience they could send contributions to post office addresses around the country.

Later, the guests included Ann Margret, whose appearance in an NBC special was the next night (Thursday December 14th).

The special hosted by the great Gregory Peck, who once worked there and greeted actress Celeste Holm and her grandmother years before stardom, was part of an effort to help save Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Mr. Carson, those 38 years ago was doubtful it could be done. However, efforts proved successful and the fact Radio City Music Hall is still around is something to be grateful  for as the last week before Labor Day begins.
